Admit it, this is quite a stud

Never was so much owed by so many to just a shoe. Ever since the strappy, studded heel graced every front row fashion editor back in autumn 2010, the Valentino Rockstud has been gathering pace with no signs of slowing. While our handbags may be becoming more demure and anonymous, this is definitely an It-shoe that wants to be noticed. Its pyramid-shaped studs have been reworked onto flats and heels, as well as bags, and for this season it comes in block colours as well as scattered with micro studs for a sparkle at your feet.
